“Great hotel”
Reviewed September 30, 2006

A great hotel with the most comfortable bed ever! Service was good and the rom was really nice. Calgary didn't impress me much though.

Stayed September 2006

The rooms in the business tower have just been renovated and are very metro. Large plasma TV, contemporary furnishings, granite countertops, heavenly king size bed and quiet. The buffet breakfast is one of the best I have been to for a very long time. The rest of the hotel looked as if it needed a facelift. I would definately stay in the tower again. This is a convenient location if you want to stay in the downtown area. Lots of shopping and activity.

The entrance is undergoing renovations and I assume so will the rest of the hotel very soon.

We had exceptional service. The hotel has excellent access to downtown, and I must say the hotel staff were excellent. The rooms were really clean and modern looking.

They're undergoing renovations at the moment so the front entrance is a mess and they were jack-hammering the morning we left. The business center was closed due to the construction and the front desk moved locations overnight.

With the business centre closed they've set up two public use computers in the lobby, but I had to wait about 45 minutes for some kids to get off them before I could use them. I would have liked to see some sort of discount offered for the mess/noise/inconvience...

Underground self-parking is availble for $10 a night. Local calls and internet are not free.

  • Liked — The bed was so soft!
  • Disliked — Paying for internet & local calls...
  • Tips/Secrets — Check to see if the renovations are completed before booking.

Lots of construction in the lobby and very loud. Did not like the overpriced food at O.N. (?) grill. Dinner entrees were $28-40.00CAD and not very good. Hotel reservations stated there is shuttle service however, it is not a free Westin Shuttle service. Transportation from the hotel/airport is CAD $12.00/per person/Shuttle or $30.00 taxi. I stayed on the Starwood Preferred level and rooms were very small. If you want to rent a car and park, parking is 22.00/day but you can park across the street in a relatively safe lot for much less. Good location, great hotel staff. If you are a starwood member, you may want to try the Sheraton Suites located directly in back of the Westin Hotel. If you plan to stay in the downtown area, no car is needed as all is within walking distance or the train for CAD $5.60/day pass which can be purchased at the ticket machine.

Lots of friendly staff. The agent suggested the tower room package and what a great value. The package we booked includes breakfast, internet, free calls and high speed internet. Excellent room for business traveller. I travel to Calgary often and stayed at all major downtown hotels and Westin has the best room! Love it.

  • Liked — I love the service and the room
  • Disliked — parking
  • Tips/Secrets — You can valet park and is great.

Great downtown location. We had quite a small room when we arrived and asked for a bigger one which they were happy to oblidge with.
Good service all round considering it was the Stampede week and busiest of the year!
Ate in the bar restuarant one evening and the food was excellent.
Would recommend this hotel if you are looking for 4 star accommodation.
